Thread: newsbin or grabit not working

  1. #1
    I use Newsbin a lot but then one day it stopped working. In the connection tab all my connections were disconnected. I couldnt download headers or anything. So I reinstalled it but nothing worked. I tried using Grab It but I get a connection error. I know my server is right because it used to work before. Im in Canada and Im on Rogers cable. nntp.broadband.rogers.com is my server. Im on a router, but as i said i dont think that affects that because i was always on a router and i didnt change any settings. Please help or give me any suggestions. Thanks

    Seems like something is set wrong considering the same results with two clients. If you want to you could try another like Newsleecher though and see what happens...

    Rogers Communications Usenet Access Stops Today...

    Rogers Communications customers will lose Usenet access supplied by Rogers today. Rogers previously used Giganews for their news service. If you want continued access you can sign up directly with Giganews. Their accounts range in price from $7.99USD to $24.99USD per month. We have links to Giganews and other quality usenet access options on our UsenetTools site.
    The messages automatically pop up when you start Newsbin unless you've either turned them off or leave NBP running.
